winter beauty essentials

winter beautyAveda Hand Relief // Dior Lip Addict Glow // Benefit Eye Cream // Nars Blush

Through the years I’ve realized that embracing the natural color of your skin in the winter can be beautiful. It’s simply not worth trying to recreate the sun kissed summer skin that we all crave, because no matter how hard you try it always looks forced and unnatural. These are a few products that help enhance my natural skin tone during these dreadful winter months.

About the products -- I keep a travel size of Aveda's hand lotion in my purse at all time in order to keep my hands from getting dry in these nasty winter months. Dior's Lip Addict is truly addicting, it takes your natural lip color and amplifies it to bring out the best shade thats uniquely yours while moisturizing at the same time. If your looking for a go-to lipstick this one is definitely worth the splurge. I received a sample of Benefit's eye cream in my Birchbox a couple of months ago and I must say, it's helped brighten my under eye area. Lastly, NARS blush in the orgasm shade is just pink enough to add a decent amount of contrast between my skin tone and the color without being too much. Love it!

Hope you enjoyed my winter essentials!
